As a college or university student in Boston or other Massachusetts town, being arrested by campus police or local authorities may cause an enormous disruption in your life. Not only will the charge likely lead to academic issues, you will also likely be formally charged with a crime in a Massachusetts courthouse. While a college campus crime may seem minor, having a criminal conviction on your record has the potential to greatly hinder your future. At Caselden Law, we will provide you with outstanding criminal defense representation not only in the courtroom, but also at any disciplinary hearings held by your college or university. In addition to the possibility of being arrested by campus police, students may also face disciplinary action if their school learns of a student’s arrest off campus as well.
In light of the far reaching consequences of being arrested while in college, it is important to speak with a criminal defense attorney with experience in defending college students accused of crimes.
The Cambridge, MA criminal defense law firm of Caselden Law will work tirelessly to ensure that you receive the best possible outcome. While our firm handles all criminal charges, some of the more common college crimes include:
- Minor in Possession of Alcohol
- Disturbing the Peace
- Disorderly Conduct
- OUI / Drunk Driving
- Drug Crimes
- Assault & Battery
- Supplying Alcohol to a Minor
- Traffic Crimes
- Possession of a Fake ID
In addition to being arrested for a criminal offense, certain traffic violations may also become an issue for college students. Often times, students face a license suspension or other restrictions as a result of traffic tickets or other driving offenses. These charges may affect not only students living in dorm rooms on campus, but also students who reside off campus or are commuters. If you are having issues with your license or have received a traffic citation, our firm will address the issue with the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) and the applicable courthouse. Beyond the accumulation of traffic tickets, many criminal offenses may result in your license being suspended on top of any other punishment handed down by the court.
